Ty Gwyn is located in the 26 acres of tranquil, private, grounds of an old Hall overlooking the estuary to Portmeirion. The cottage is just 4 miles from Harlech where you can visit Harlech Castle or the Royal St. David's Golf Club and 22 miles from the Snowdonia Light Railway to take you to the top of Mount Snowdon.

The cottage was cosy with its log burner and wonderful panoramic view from the window. It is quite close to some lovely beaches, if you have a car. It is in a peaceful location and has everything you could need to make your stay really comfortable. The kitchen is really well stocked and there is a good selection of films to watch and books to read. We would say this is the nicest cottage we have stayed in.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, we sold 44 weeks in 2010 and 43 weeks in 2009. The cottage remains so very popular due to its fantastic location being in the grounds of a stately home set in 26 acres.
A fabulous cottage to get away from it all and relax in.

We took a winter break here in February against my better judgment but wow were we impressed. This has to be the most comprehensively stocked cottage we've ever stayed in and it was immaculate throughout.
The views are every bit as magnificent as on the website no trickery or zooming it really is a walk into countryside bliss. The views of Snowdon on clear sunny days were some of our best pictures.
We loved the open air garden room and had many evenings sitting in the comfy deck chairs reclining in bliss.
Porthmadog has everything you need Tesco, Lydl, Aldi, fresh bakers, fabulous butchers. Harlech is 4 miles away with a fabulous Spar again all you really need plus the butcher here has fabulous steaks, sausages, bacon etc...we overdosed on meat once we discovered him so this is a definite recommend especially for the brick bar-b-que in front of the garden room... we loved this such a treat!
Comfortable beds, log burner, great days out, cosy nights in this is the cottage with the mostest and loved particularly being in the grounds of a private Hall which meant an added level of privacy and security.
Hope you love this cottage as much as we did and will definitely be coming back to Ty-Gwyn.

Having stayed at the Cox's Spanish property we decided to have an autumn break in North Wales and we were not disappointed, far from it. This cottage has everything, my wife is a highly trained chef and she was thrilled to bits with the equipment here and baked every day.
The views are out of this world, even from the lounge window it is truly stunning and the children could not believe the magical starry nights - we even bought a telescope whilst we stayed at Ty-Gwyn - with no light pollution you can truly enjoy the setting.
We loved relaxing at night on the deck chairs on the decking area that was a rare treat. We also loved the log burner so much that we've had one installed in our own home.
We wanted for nothing, Liz & Andy Cox advised of everything, they were very helpful on the phone and the next door neighbour at no.2 a retired head mistress called Dorothy was an absolute angel, friendly, helpful and always a kind word.
If you want a special break, with people you love go no further than Caerffynnon Hall estate you will love it here. The 10th Century Hill fort was a particular love of my 3 children who made a den and took our 2 dogs for a daily picnic to admire the panoramic views.
The beaches, mountains, facilities and the general high standard of the cottage was a real home from home, we have never rented anywhere that has been to this very high standard.
Enjoy your holiday here, we're coming again in December 2010 with friends for an adult escape the kids weekend, a real re-charge your batteries location and if you get the opportunity to walk on the beaches whatever the weather it truly is another world.

Owner's Response: Caerffynnon Hall Estate is magical. The fact you have 26 acres of privacy to explore just adds to the intrigue of this wonderful part of North Wales, despite the fact we think the cottage is beautiful inside and out, having everything you could possibly need on holiday.
The real bonus of this property are the views, truly stunning.
